Intro to T/CI

Introduction to Teaching with Comprehensible Input (T/CI)

My presentation, Reimagining Modern Hebrew Language Instruction, will help you explore these questions:

How does the brain acquire language?

Have you ever observed a caregiver and a toddler having a conversation? What does it look/sound like?  Does a toddler speak in full sentences? 

What role do affect and emotion play in language acquisition?

Is your teaching approach aligned with how the brain acquires language?

Follow up: What are some differences between these strategies for teaching and your current practice?  Does your Hebrew classroom practice  reflect your understanding of Second Language Acquisition?
